Ro-ro Cebu To Negros

8 posts in this topic

This upcoming school out Holiday we would like to take a trip for an upclose look at Mount Kanlaon(Canlaon) volcano situated on nextdoor Negros. The plan is drive from Cebu-City to some place west coast and catch a RORO to a city with accomodations, then drive for an upclose look.

 

Would hate to drive all the way south then RoRo to Dumaguette then drive 165km to the North. Is there a RoRo maybe in Toledo City?

 

My son been dying to get a look at a real Volcano. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks in Advance.

Hello Pokeman yes drive to Torledo either via Naga or what I prefer is via Luhug past the marco Polo hotel and straight to Balamban and to Torledo. In Balaanban there is a great German restaurant called Zeilbe (oinon) ideal for lunch. Many boats to San Carlos from Torledo, which is about 45 minutes to Canlaon. Some great hikes around Canlaon, no banks so bring enough money. neat place to stay is F & C pension house close to the down town. Canlaaon is very cheap how ever limited facilities for tourists. Food is a disaster.....

 

If you require a good honest local guide just let me know as I know some there.

There is a Ro-ro from Dumanjug-Tangil,Cebu to Guihulngan Negros Oriental, operated by P.A.R. TRANSPORT.

Last time I took this it departed at 10:40, the Ro-ro is big enough for a few large trucks.

 

So head South from Cebu City drive as far as the big roundabout in Carcar, turn right pass through Barilli and the ferry is in Tangil just before Dumanjug.

 

Its a good road all the way, and will be much faster than heading south.

Thanks all for the quick reply. Some great ideas, i've driven these routes before but never taken a car across the other side.

 

We don't plan to take the hike up, that might be too ruff for the little fellow and mom. Let me break out my maps and again, THANKS!

It's over a year old but there may still be a 4-km danger zone around the volcano. You should be able to look, but you may not be able to get too close. A trip to the Philvolcs website may give you current info on Kanlaon.

Its quite OK to climb Canlaon at this time or to hike in the vicinity. I climbed it about a 6 weeks ago and intend to accompany a group of locals on another climb this Nov 15.

 

Just onje has to register at the local tourist office which is straight forward, no problems. They are a great bunch there, I love the place but its sadly not geared up for tourists.

Is Canlaon the mountain you cross on the inland road from Bacolod to Dumaguete ? Theres a couple of hot spring places and it's a really nice drive.

No, I think you are referring to Mabinay. Canlaon is about 100 km north between Bacolod and San Carlos.

      Very strangely this is not being reported anywhere in the mainstream news. Last nights (Sat) 7.50 from Ormoc to Cebu collided with another vessel not too far from the port of Cebu. Wife's parents were passengers. MIL texted us at home around 9.30pm that they had just hit another vessel while still out at sea. Sadly the collision was at full cruising speed and apparently "rear ended" another vessel, a barge or similiar sized vessel. Almost all of the passengers which appeared to be not numerous, sustained some injuries, but no deaths. The response of 2Go is being slammed by all aboard, with not telling the passengers any updates, to not giving out where berthed info to making the walking injured walk to waiting relatives outside the port. A large proportion of the passengers were asleep at the time of the collision and have sustained injuries consistent from being thrown from a seat, cuts, abrasions, missing teeth, severe bruising etc. It has been said that the 2Go vessel rode up and onto the other vessel. Quick thinking crew on the other vessel tied the two together to prevent the 2Go cat from becoming adrift or possible sinking.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is this normal in the Philippines ? Is this wacko or am I living in an altered state ? My long term girlfriend is getting ready to sign a contract for an unbuilt half of duplex of 26 sq. meters for half a million p. in a small city in Mindanao. Nice fight ensued on Valentines Day. I have visited but will not be moving there for a year and have no idea about buiding costs in the area. This seems way off the chain to me, but what do I know? Any knowlegeable input would be appreciated.

      A friend has an Iphone 5 and it needs a screen, can anyone recommend a reasonable and reliable place to have it done? I may bring it with me to get it fixed for him if it can be done for a reasonable amount
